It should have been after the Tag Table in the first place.  It should
be at the very end of the file (within 3KB from its end, to be exact).

This is really old; the current version is 6.3.  Texinfo 4.8 was the
first one that supported @documentencoding, so I guess it had some
bugs in that area.  I suggest to upgrade.

Any reason not to close this bug report, now that we know it wasn't an
Emacs problem?

Thanks.
